Racer X Design KC-427 Concept

The Racer X Design revealed for the first time the sketches of the KC-437 to the public. The concept has design that is dramatic, modern and it adds a more new age twist. The model is powered by a 7.0-liter V8 motor, like the one found on the Corvette Z06. The power to weight ratio is 550 BHP/ton. The KC-427 is expected to be finished in around one year and it will be sold internationally. The Racer X design team is already known for both the GTV Evoluzione and the RCX, both of which won several awards both in design and construction. The first twenty people who show interest will be offered the opportunity to purchase the KC once the cars are ready.

A modern interpretation of the legendary Cobra 427, as seen by the Maltese designers at Racer X Design. This is the first time that Racer X Design is showing the sketches of the KC-427 to the public.

Designed to evoke the emotions of the classic cobra, the KC-427 concept captures the beautiful design of the original while adding a more brutal new age twist. The design is dramatic, modern yet with the same lines that made the original an icon, the KC does not try to hide the fact that its insight comes from the 60`s. It looks ready to chew the tarmac even in design phase.

The small dimensions together with a space frame chassis consent to build a car that weighs less than a ton, even with a 7.0L V8 motor as found on the new Corvette Z06. The result would be a car that has a power to weight ratio of around 550 bhp/ton.

The Concept car will be completed within a year, expect it to be a hit. A relatively small Company that builds one off cars for the single enthusiast, the Racer X design team is already known for both the GTV Evoluzione and the RCX, both of which won several awards both in design and construction.

This is also the first time that instead of building a one off, twenty KC-427`s are intended to be sold internationally. "We will start collecting information on who might be interested in this car. The first twenty people who show interest will be offered the opportunity to purchase the KC once the cars are ready and be updated regularly with the progress" said Reuben Zammit " Director and Head of design of Racer X.
